Now a sailor's life is a life for him,
But it never was for me,
And I never soared where the hawk may soar,
Or see what the hawk might see,

Never hiked to heaven on a mountain trail,
Never rode on a river's rage...
No I, never did no wanderin'
Never did no wanderin'
Never did no wanderin' after all.

They call me the wanderer
Yeah, the wanderer
I roam around, around, around

I've got a song that ain't got no melody
I'm gonna sing it to my friends
Will it go round in circles
Will it fly high like a bird up in the sky

n the circle of life
It's the wheel of fortune
It's the leap of faith
It's the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life

Dream, love is only in a dream
Remember
Remember, life is never as it seems
Dream

Long ago
Far away
Life was clear
Close your eyes

Close your eyes and I'll kiss you
Tomorrow I'll miss you
Remember I'll always be true....

I gave you the warning,
But you never heeded it.
How can you say you miss my lovin,
When you never needed it?

And when I write the book about my love
It will be about a man who's torn in half
About his hopes and ambitions wasted through the years
The pain will be written on every page in tears

Chapter one says to love her
You love her with all your heart
Chapter two you tell her you're
Never, never, never, never, never gonna part
In chapter three remember the meaning of romance
In chapter four you break up
But you give her just one more chance

Chances are 'cause I wear a silly grin
The moment you come into view
Chances are you think that I'm in love with you

I think I'm in love
And my life's lookin' up
I think I'm in love
'Cause I can't get enough
I think I'm in love
It's gotta be love

Am I dead (oh, la la la)
Or alive? (oh, la la la)
Can my poor heart (oh, la la la)
Survive? (oh, la la la)
Am I in love? (ah) I must be in love

I'm not in love, so don't forget it
It's just a silly phase I'm going through
And just because I call you up
Don't get me wrong, don't think you've got it made....

Hey I just met you
And this is crazy
But here's my number
So call me maybe
And all the other boys
Try to chase me
But here's my number
So call me maybe

Maybe I'm a man and maybe I'm a lonely man
Who's in the middle of something
That he doesn't really understand

Have you ever seen a sight as beautiful
As a face in a crowd of people
That lights up just for you?

There's a light
A certain kind of light
That never shone on me
I want my life to be
Lived with you
Lived with you

Lay me on the ground or fly me in the sky
Show me where to look, tell me what will I find?
What will I find? (Yeah) (Yeah) (Yeah)
Whoa, heaven let your light shine down
Whoa, heaven let your light shine down

Fly me to the moon
And let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars

Now that she's back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there's time to change

She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running
Like a watercolor in the rain,
Don't bother asking for explanations
She'll just tell you that she came in the year of the cat.

Well, since my baby left me,
I found a new place to dwell.
It's down at the end of Lonely Street,
At Heartbreak Hotel.

You like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough
You know you're gonna have to face it, you're addicted to love

I wish that I was born a thousand years ago
I wish that I'd sail the darkened seas
On a great big clipper ship
Going from this land here to that
In a sailor's suit and cap
Away from the big city
Where a man cannot be free
Of all of the evils of this town
And of himself, and those around

And you, to whom adversity has dealt the final blow
With smiling bastards lying to you everywhere you go
Turn to, and put out all your strength of arm and heart and brain
And like the Mary Ellen Carter, rise again.

Cruisin' on a sardine boat,
Loaded with crazy people,
And we shall be the Santa Maria.
Looking for a brave new world.

Sailing takes me away to where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

He was the captain of the Nightingale
Twenty-one days from Clyde in coal.
He could smell the flowers of Bermuda in the gale,
When he died on the North Rock Shoal.

Yeah, Brandy used to watch his eyes
When he told his sailor stories
She could feel the ocean fall and rise
She saw its ragin' glory
But he had always told the truth, Lord, he was an honest man
And Brandy does her best to understand

Down the highway, down the tracks
Down the road to ecstasy
I followed you beneath the stars
Hounded by your memory
And all your ragin' glory

Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today

He gave us sweet cherry wine
So very fine
We'll drink it right down, pass it all around
So stimulating, so intoxicating
Sweet cherry wine.
